Book Review: The Big Wide-Mouthed Frog by Ana Martin Larranaga

Photo 1

A friendly little frog who eats flies meets many different animals and discovers what they eat. The last animal he meets is a crocodile and he's shocked by what he eats. Your child will love this funny sequencing book. One thing to watch for in this book is the little fly on each page. He doesn't say a thing but his expression changes as you turn each page. Point these out to your children as you read. 

After reading this book make these fun close pin frogs. All you'll need to do is print the page below, color them, cut along the solid line that starts at the mouth of the frog and then glue each half to the top and bottom of a close pin.

Read the story again and every time you say "Well, I'm a big wide-mouthed frog! And I eat flies!" Have your child open the frogs mouth. You can add a little fly on the back side of the close pin if you want to. Get creative!
